Interfaith celebration promotes peace

“Peace Begins with Me” evening at St. John the Divine

Want to help create a peaceful global community?

Contribute by taking part in the “Peace Begins with Me” evening at the Parish Hall of St. John the Divine on Fifth Street.

This interfaith peace celebration takes place on Thursday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m.

Unity Comox Valley has organized this fifth annual event. They are especially pleased to have Mystic Valley Voices and representatives of the Buddhist, Jewish, Baha’i and Muslim faiths joining together for this special evening of prayers and chants.

Vicki Vanderhorst, minister of Unity Comox Valley says, “Peace in the world starts with peace in our own hearts. Each person can be a presence of peace, no matter the circumstances. Every one of us either adds to or takes away from the peace of the whole through his or her daily words and actions.”

Donations will be gratefully accepted to support the Comox Valley Land Trust.
